Billet Families and Housing

We take pride in our process of screening potential billet families and strengthening the relationship with existing legacy billet families. Every Junior Sabres Billet environment is family friendly, safe and comfortable according to the unique needs of each player and their parents/guardians. Furthermore, when applicable on road trips, players are housed in the clean, quality hotel environments.

Safety, Health and Environment

The Buffalo Junior Sabres stepped up the quality of their hockey environment in 2014 by moving into a new, state-of-the-art $172 million dollar facility that is known as the HARBORCENTER. Built by the owners of the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills, Terry and Kim Pegula, the Junior Sabres were invited to play and train next door to the home of the NHL franchise. Integrated with the HARBORCENTER’s Academy of Hockey, all players have immediate access to educational facilities, health and first-aid attention, and everything else that is required by players families. We also have strict policies regarding bullying, concussion protocol, drugs and alcohol, diversity, hazing, and we continue to adapt to any other factors that concern players and their parents.
